For entry into kindergarten

En grande section (Grade primary): Your child must be at least 5 years old by December 31 of the current year.

From1st grade to 12th grade

Applicants from a school approved by the French Ministry of Education will be admitted based on their academic record. It is therefore important to send them to us as soon as possible.

If your child is coming from a non-accredited school, he or she may take an initial admission test to assess his or her level in the various subjects according to the class. If so, the admissions office will contact you to schedule an appointment.
